Wow really, in that case I am amazed to see the exposure & clarity levels at both near by objects & far ones. Is this because of a good Lens + Filter + DSLR combo or is it PP magic?

Excellent Place Tanveer !! I never knew such a place existed. Definetely my next destination for a weekend. For me it will be 200 + 550 and back so 1500 km drive. Agra - Kalatop that is.

What Hotel options do we have ?

Actually only the wide angle shots are with a Polarizer. Rest zoom shots, and night shots have no filters etc., And the lens is the very basic 18-55mm and the 75-300mm, both of which are ultra budget lenses

Only option for stay inside the forest is the FRH. right now there is water shortage going on, but post mid feb things will get okay and thats kind of off season too.
Just go to hpforest.nic.in and call them up for bookings.
Room cost = 500rs
Meal for 1 which has rice, daal, sabzi and lots of rotis = 50rs (eggs extra charge)

As I said earlier, the daytime wide angle shots are with polarizer, which gives bluer skies and cuts reflections. It cuts through haze also to a degree

Hey Tanveer, nice find man, added to my list of destinations.

As expected, plenty of marvelous shots and narration. Just an observation, some shots in the 3rd post seem to be overexposed!

Now just waiting for the day when I'd take a trip. Been too long now.

Thanks guys!
I use a 18-55mm kit lens with my 350D. Daytime shots are with hoya polarizer attached. For night, I use bulb mode and extremely long exposure(500 sec +)

Yup, I was overexposing by a stop because of snow, but some shots got a little too overexposed. The good ones I fixed in the RAW file.

Thanks a ton for the wonderful photographs. You refreshed my memory of HP.... was there in 2002... Had a borrowed Indica and drove around. I was stationed at Chamba.

Please start compiling your logs and photos.. you will find a publisher or a publisher may find you. I am sure it will make a good read. I would also suggest sending a copy to lonely planet magazine, they just started in India. I am sure they will love your stuff.

Regards
